iPad Mini now outselling big brother NPD DisplaySearch has noted this weekend that the iPad Mini is now outselling its bigger brother, the full-sized iPad.
Apple has doubled their display panel orders from component makers LG and AUO, from 6 million to 12 million.

The new product sells for $329 as a base model compared to $500 for the new fourth-generation iPad.

Says NPD: "The iPad Mini apparently is selling better than the new iPad 4. It seems people especially like the size...[it's] lighter, slimmer and easier to carry." Afterdawn completely agreed with this sentiment in our review.

Looking into the future, the group says 50 million iPad Minis sold could be sold next year.

I can't believe how dumb people can be to buy an inferior product compared to the nexus and kindle and pay more money for it! I think an investigation should be launched into Apple as there has to be some sort of hypnotism integrated into their advertisements.
